Brendan Rodgers on Wednesday night tipped Odsonne Edouard to fill the void if Moussa Dembele leaves Celtic.
Dembele remains a target for a raft of top clubs in England and abroad after turning down a January move to Brighton.
But the Parkhead club hold an £8million option on on-loan striker Edouard as his long-term replacement.

The Paris Saint-Germain player announced his arrival with three goals in two games against Rangers.
And Rodgers admits he'd love to keep the the 20-year-old around if Dembele eventually goes.
'Moussa is a fantastic player and the reasons why he has come here have borne fruit,' said the Celtic boss.
'We wouldn't want to lose him, but you have to think he's a big talent and something may happen in the summer.
